Overview

Git::Base is the main public interface for interacting with Git commands.

Instead of creating a Git::Base directly, obtain a Git::Base instance by calling one of the follow Git class methods: open, init, clone, or bare.

Constructor Details

#initialize(options = {}) ⇒ Git::Base

Create an object that executes Git commands in the context of a working copy or a bare repository.

Parameters:

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    The options for this command (see list of valid options below)

Options Hash (options):

  • :working_dir (Pathname)

    the path to the root of the working directory. Should be nil if executing commands on a bare repository.

  • :repository (Pathname)

    used to specify a non-standard path to the repository directory. The default is "#{working_dir}/.git".

  • :index (Pathname)

    used to specify a non-standard path to an index file. The default is "#{working_dir}/.git/index"

  • :log (Logger)

    A logger to use for Git operations. Git commands are logged at the :info level. Additional logging is done at the :debug level.

    options[:repository] ||= File.join(working_dir, '.git')
    options[:index] ||= File.join(options[:repository], 'index')
  end
  if options[:log]
    @logger = options[:log]

end

Class Method Details

.bare(git_dir, options = {}) ⇒ Git::Base

Open a bare repository

Opens a bare repository located in the git_dir directory. Since there is no working copy, you can not checkout or commit but you can do most read operations.

Examples:

Open a bare repository and retrieve the first commit SHA

repository = Git.bare('ruby-git.git')
puts repository.log[0].sha #=> "64c6fa011d3287bab9158049c85f3e85718854a0"

Parameters:

  • git_dir (Pathname)

    The path to the bare repository directory containing an initialized Git repository. If a relative path is given, it is converted to an absolute path using File.expand_path.

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    The options for this command (see list of valid options below)

Options Hash (options):

  • :log (Logger)

    A logger to use for Git operations. Git commands are logged at the :info level. Additional logging is done at the :debug level.

Returns:

  • (Git::Base)

    an object that can execute git commands in the context of the bare repository.

end

.clone(repository, name, options = {}) ⇒ Git::Base

Clone a repository into an empty or newly created directory

Examples:

Clone into the default directory ruby-git

git = Git.clone('https://github.com/ruby-git/ruby-git.git')

Clone and then checkout the development branch

git = Git.clone('https://github.com/ruby-git/ruby-git.git', branch: 'development')

Clone into a different directory my-ruby-git

git = Git.clone('https://github.com/ruby-git/ruby-git.git', 'my-ruby-git')
# or:
git = Git.clone('https://github.com/ruby-git/ruby-git.git', path: 'my-ruby-git')

Create a bare repository in the directory ruby-git.git

git = Git.clone('https://github.com/ruby-git/ruby-git.git', bare: true)

Parameters:

  • repository (URI, Pathname)

    The (possibly remote) repository to clone from. See GIT URLS for more information.

  • name (Pathname)

    The directory to clone into.

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    The options for this command (see list of valid options below)

Options Hash (options):

  • :bare (Boolean)

    Make a bare Git repository. See what is a bare repository?.

  • :branch (String)

    The name of a branch or tag to checkout instead of the default branch.

  • :depth (Integer)

    Create a shallow clone with a history truncated to the specified number of commits.

  • :log (Logger)

    A logger to use for Git operations. Git commands are logged at the :info level. Additional logging is done at the :debug level.

  • :mirror (Boolean)

    Set up a mirror of the source repository.

  • :origin (String)

    Use the value instead origin to track the upstream repository.

  • :path (Pathname)

    The directory to clone into. May be used as an alternative to the directory parameter. If specified, the path option is used instead of the directory parameter.

  • :recursive (Boolean)

    After the clone is created, initialize all submodules within, using their default settings.

Returns:

  • (Git::Base)

    an object that can execute git commands in the context of the cloned local working copy or cloned repository.

.init(directory, options = {}) ⇒ Git::Base

Create an empty Git repository or reinitialize an existing Git repository

Examples:

Initialize a repository in the current directory

git = Git.init

Initialize a repository in some other directory

git = Git.init '~/code/ruby-git'

Initialize a bare repository

git = Git.init '~/code/ruby-git.git', bare: true

Initialize a repository in a non-default location (outside of the working copy)

git = Git.init '~/code/ruby-git', repository: '~/code/ruby-git.git'

Parameters:

  • directory (Pathname)

    If the :bare option is NOT given or is not true, the repository will be created in "#{directory}/.git". Otherwise, the repository is created in "#{directory}".

    All directories along the path to directory are created if they do not exist.

    A relative path is referenced from the current working directory of the process and converted to an absolute path using File.expand_path.

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    The options for this command (see list of valid options below)

Options Hash (options):

  • :bare (Boolean)

    Instead of creating a repository at "#{directory}/.git", create a bare repository at "#{directory}". See what is a bare repository?.

  • :repository (Pathname)

    the path to put the newly initialized Git repository. The default for non-bare repository is "#{directory}/.git".

    A relative path is referenced from the current working directory of the process and converted to an absolute path using File.expand_path.

  • :log (Logger)

    A logger to use for Git operations. Git commands are logged at the :info level. Additional logging is done at the :debug level.

Returns:

  • (Git::Base)

    an object that can execute git commands in the context of the newly initialized repository

  # TODO: maybe refactor so this Git::Bare.init does this:
  #   self.new(opts).init(init_opts) and move all/some of this code into
  #   Git::Bare#init. This way the init method can be called on any
  #   repository you have a Git::Base instance for.  This would not

.open(working_dir, options = {}) ⇒ Git::Base

Open a an existing Git working directory

Git.open will most likely be the most common way to create a git reference, referring to an existing working directory.

If not provided in the options, the library will assume the repository and index are in the default places (.git/, .git/index).

Examples:

Open the Git working directory in the current directory

git = Git.open

Open a Git working directory in some other directory

git = Git.open('~/Projects/ruby-git')

Use a logger to see what is going on

logger = Logger.new(STDOUT)
git = Git.open('~/Projects/ruby-git', log: logger)

Open a working copy whose repository is in a non-standard directory

git = Git.open('~/Projects/ruby-git', repository: '~/Project/ruby-git.git')

Parameters:

  • working_dir (Pathname)

    the path to the working directory to use for git commands.

    A relative path is referenced from the current working directory of the process and converted to an absolute path using File.expand_path.

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    The options for this command (see list of valid options below)

Options Hash (options):

  • :repository (Pathname)

    used to specify a non-standard path to the repository directory. The default is "#{working_dir}/.git".

  • :index (Pathname)

    used to specify a non-standard path to an index file. The default is "#{working_dir}/.git/index"

  • :log (Logger)

    A logger to use for Git operations. Git commands are logged at the :info level. Additional logging is done at the :debug level.

Returns:

  • (Git::Base)

    an object that can execute git commands in the context of the opened working copy
